Lifter valley screens, added safety for catching broken valve train pieces, but will they stay put? Is the epoxy the comes with the kits, good enough to keep it in place?
what screen did you use? material and size?We just clean the block real good and use JB weld. Have never had a problem with our valley scavenge screens coming out even after years of heat and abuse. I used the same method to screen the valley in my BBC, no problems after the first year of use. Look just like they did when new.
Not sure about the epoxy that comes with a kit as I made my own screens.
My first reach would be for the acetone bottle. Absolutely no residue left on the iron.Woodpecker Lips? I don't even wanna know....
Okay, I'll bite, what are people using to get the blocks super clean so the epoxy will stick? Brakeclean, Laquer Thinner???
Acetone does leave a residue...iospropyl acohol is about the only thing that doesent, and 99% at that. Not saying acetone won't clean enough, though.My first reach would be for the acetone bottle. Absolutely no residue left on the iron.
